The long awaited revival of Notzake Shange’s masterpiece, “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf” has been postponed until more money can be found. One of the plays major backers has dropped out of the production forcing Whoopi Goldberg and DreamTeam Ent. Group to put the production on hold. India Arie was set to star in the production.

Oprah needs to jump in here and help to make this show happen. If you have never read or seen this production then you are missing one of the great works of theater. The show mixes poetry, dance, and social issues. It’s a wonderful show.
